What’s Louisville’s big idea? This Thursday, August 16 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., join us for the next City Suds Urbanism Happy Hour at Zanzabar (2100 South Preston Street), which is quickly shaping up to being a monthly event. We’ll be taking on the Bloomberg Mayors Challenge, brainstorming ideas for Louisville to bring home the $5 million dollar prize, and if we come up with something good, we’ll send it along to Mayor Fischer for consideration. What’s the Mayors Challenge?
According to the Car-Free Happy Hour Facebook event page, “Car-Free Happy Hour will be kicking it up two notches this month with classic video game and pinball fun at the ultra-hip Zanzabar!” As is usual with these gatherings, people interested in transportation options other than the automobile will be on hand for a lively discussion on transportation and more. It’s a great opportunity for a bike ride or trying out TARC like you’ve been meaning to. So head on over to Zanzabar (2100 South Preston Street) between 5:30 and 8:00 p.m. next Wednesday.

Here’s a rundown of some of the new business that’s happening in Louisville.
